Each summer season, County Parks looks forward to providing the Cuyama Valley community with a way to cool off, exercise and play! The Centeno Aquatics Complex in New Cuyama boasts a four-lane by 25-yard pool along with an 18-inch deep wading pool and spray structure. The pools are staffed with American Red Cross-Certified lifeguards and are free five days a week.
